A Daughter of St. Paul "For All My Life"!

On May 18, 2019, in Nyeri, Kenya, Sr. Jackie Jean-Marie made her perpetual profession of vows as a Daughter of St. Paul! Sr. Jackie is originally from Kenya, but entered the Daughters of St. Paul in the United States. At her perpetual profession, she received her mandate from Sr Donna, our provincial superior, to serve in our community in New Orleans, Louisiana!

Perpetual profession is the commitment to live the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience as a Daughter of St. Paul forever. It is the culmination of nine or ten years of initial formation (entering the community, postulancy, novitiate, and temporary profession). And, as one of our older Sisters likes to put it, it is the beginning of "formation for heaven"!

We'll be hearing more from Sr. Jackie soon, but in the meantime, you might enjoy this slideshow of photos: click here!

"Lord, send the gift of your Holy Spirit upon your servant who has left all things for your sake. Father, may her life reveal the face of --Christ your Son, so that all who see her may come to know that he is always present in your Church."
--From the Rite of Perpetual Profession
